This exhibition of photographs by the noted photographer Diane Arbus was curated by Rod Slemmons, Associate Curator of Photography at the Seattle Art Museum. This is a rare opportunity to see a significant number of photographs brought together from public and private collections. The images in this particular exhibition represent a range of work done by Arbus from the early 1960s to the time of her death in 1971.
Norman Mailer once commented that giving a camera to Diane Arbus was like giving a hand grenade to a baby. Rod Slemmons will be on campus Wednesday, January 21, 1987, to present a lecture entitled "Diane Arbus in 1987".
